One of the Sunshine Coast’s most anticipated pieces of recreational infrastructure has already proven its popularity, with the community making great use of the new $2 million boardwalk at Mooloolaba after it was opened yesterday.

The unveiling of the 3.4m wide boardwalk follows the official opening of the new $5.15 million Mooloolaba Walk and Ride Bridge last week and the recent announcement that Sunshine Coast Council will invest $3.5 million into upgrading the Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park next year.

The completely new wider boardwalk was constructed using durable, long-lasting composite materials, along with aluminium and stainless steel, as a sustainable option to replace the deteriorating timber.

The upgrade included new lighting, improved beach access points including seating and viewing platforms along the route, and up to 10,000 new native plants to revegetate surrounding dunes.
